John Joe Herrera Obituary
JOHN JOE HERRERA, JR., age 77, passed away with his family at his side on July 9, 2016. He was born June 3, 1939, in Riverside, CA. He is survived by his 14 children, whom he loved dearly. Ten children are from his first marriage to Carolyn Blackwell Herrera: Karen Amos, Joe Herrera, III, Janet Kwasneiski, Alice De Almeida, Nancy Miranda, Cheryl Gonzales, Edward Herrera, Anthony Herrera, Maria Cordenis & Tina Neese, as well as four children from his second marriage to Loretta Huff-Herrera: Andrew Herrera, Megan Galvan, Rachel Herrera, and Jonathan Herrera. He is also survived by 23 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. He was an accomplished Craftsman specializing in upholstery doing both residential and commercial pieces. If you are from Riverside County you've probably had the pleasure of sitting on one of his pieces. He took an immense amount of pride in his work. He was an avid long-distance cyclist, and had a love for classic cars and the trees he planted. With this in mind the family requests that you plant a tree in his memory in lieu of flowers. Visitation: Friday, July 15, 2016 from 9am-12pm at Arlington Mortuary. Funeral Mass: Saturday, July 16, 2016 at 10:00am at St. Thomas The Apostle Church followed by burial at Olivewood Memorial Park at 11:30am.
